The dipthena is prevailing to a consid

mostly to the children. Several deaths
have already occurred.
Died, in Grand Haven, 25lh inst.,
Mart Hikes, aged six years.
Little Mart had a very active intellect,
an amiable and affectionate disposition,
and was a great favorite with all her play
mates, and the pet of her teachers and pa
rents. But 6horl was her little day of
life. After suffering with much patience,
for a week, tho distress peculiar to the
disease, diplhcria, of which she died, she
has gono to the Good Shepherd above.
Tho following aro somo of tho versos
recited by her at the closo of tho last
term of school tho narrative of which
seems much like tho history of her own
Wlthin'a poor man'f dwelling
A lovely rosebud grow j
Pure as the (low of heaven,
No guilo it ever knew.
The lovely flower expanded,
Each day it grew more rnre,
They prized it more than rubies,
And watched with Jealous care.
Whene'er a'passing shadow
Disturbed this gentle flower,
They'd shield it in their bosom
It grew more lovely there.
Not long bad they to watch it,
And bathe it with their tears ;
A solemn voice from heavon
Cnino gently to their cars,
Saying, "The little bud I lent thco
Is drooping all alono
A messenger is waiting
. To bring me back my own."
They watched beside her pillow,
Till the sunshine's golden rny
Had kissed the early evening,
And then she passed awny.
And so the angels bore her,
On wings of purest love,
Up through tho pearly gates
To the paradise above.
